Sherri McMullen, proprietor at two eponymous boutiques in the East Bay (Oakland and Piedmont), created a lovely tribute to Martin Luther King to celebrate the holiday honoring the great African American leader. "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that." Words to live by. We salute you Dr. King! And thank you, McMullen, for the tribute.
